Batman Inc. Ain't Dead Yet!
Batman, Incoporated's final issue may be hitting in July, but the team will be sticking around for a bit longer with the release of Augusts' Batman, Incorporated Special #1. The anthology will continue the stories of many of the Batman Inc. representatives (who have been sorely missed in this second volume) with stories from creators such as Chris Burnham, Ethan Van Sciver, Dan Didio, Joe Keatinge, and more.
But that's not all, Chris Burnham will be the writer of this month's issue #11, with art by Jorge Lucas, in a story that steps away from the main Leviathan story for a bit to visit Mr. Unknown, aka Batman Japan, in... well, Japan. Given where #10 ended, this might break some momentum, but if this allows Burnham to finish the last two issues by himself, then I'm perfectly fine with that.
Check out the IGN interview to see some art pages from issue #11, with Batman Japan's redesigned suit.
